Review: "Bringing Reggio Emilia Home is the first book to integrate the experiences of one American teacher on a year-long internship in the preschools of Reggio, with a four-year adaptation effort in one American school. The lively text includes many "mini-stories" of preschool and kindergarten-age children, teachers, and parents who embark on journeys of learning together. These journeys take shape in language, in drawings, in tempera paint and clay, in outdoor excursions, and in the imaginations of both the children and adults. This informative and accessible work features photographs of the children (both in Italy and the United States) and samples of the children's work, including some in full color." "Selected topics: The Fundamentals of the Reggio Approach; The Pleasure and Power of Playing with Materials; Plants in Relationships; Children and Spoken Language; Transforming Space, Time, and Relations; Turning the Preschool Classroom into a Greenhouse; Taking the Plant Project to Kindergarten."--BOOK JACKET.
